i was planning to burn my racquets after the match if i had been competitive.
my body moved as one piece. my arm and whole right side felt like a rigid piece of wood. kinetic chain was not existent. i was over-running short balls.
i played for 4 more hrs after the match. i was hitting fine against same level of player (by looking at their tournament result).
i dont know whats worse - being a choker or lacking the innate qualities. maybe both?!
